Praca dla studentów i doktorantów

Oferta dla doktoranta

Our Neurocognitive Laboratory at the Center for Modern Interdisciplinary Technologies, Nicolaus Copernicus University, Torun, Poland, is looking for PhD students to work on the project: „In search of the sources of brain's cognitive activity”.

Consortium running this project is composed of 4 institutions: Neurocognitive Lab and Department of Informatics, Nicolaus Copernicus University, Toruń, Poland (supervisors: prof. A. Cichocki, prof. W. Duch), Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology, Polish Academy of Science, Warsaw (dr hab. E. Kublik), and Bioimaging Research Center, Institute of Physiology and Pathology of Hearing, Warsaw (dr T. Wolak).

STARTING DATE: November 15, 2021 or later, maximum of two years.

TO APPLY: send your CV, a motivation letter, a list of publications, and one or more recommendation letters to prof. Włodzisław Duch, wduch@umk.plas soon as possible and no later than November 10, 2021

RESEARCH TOPIC:

To understand how brain executes cognitive functions we need to find an optimal method of identification of brain structures responsible for generation of the EEG waves recorded on the scalp. We want to identify the unique spatio-temporal maps of electrical activation specific for the activated structures/subnetworks, so-called EEG-fingerprint specific for each structure. The project is focused on novel methods of EEG and fMRI signal analysis that will be verified using real time fMRI/EEG neurofeedback and behavioral experiments.

PROFILE of PhD candidates:

MSc in computer science, signal processing, machine learning, applied mathematics, theoretical/computational physics or related fields.

Programming experience in Python, Matlab, or C/C++.

Experience with neural networks, analysis of neuroimaging data, or computational modelling would be an asset.
